yep, and I think Rogi also sees it that way But sometimes it's better to face those tough opponents in the later rounds, after you got rhythm and preparation... which won't be the case here, as Rogi will need to play his best right from the start

I remember the last time Guga played Wimbledon, he reached the second round after his first round opponent quit with injury (Guga had lost the first set ), Guga was never a great grass court player, even though he did reach the QFs once

True... Roger usually starts "slowly" in a tournament, he gets rythm at the end, so it doens't matter he has tougher oponents then.

I don't remember a lot of Guga at Wimbledon

Yes. Federer is like Brazil in the World Cup.

Re: The "Tenacious Florianopolis Surfers" Chat Thread!

I got my job back at Tommy Hilfiger Remember, when I worked there 2 years ago? I'm already excited!

Here I don't have the cable so I won't have any tennis coverage, except NBC's coverage (our reception of NBC is horrible though, it's really tough to see the ball), I hope to see some exciting matches

That's great! Congrats

Does NBC show a lot of tennis?
I am looking forward to see some great matches as well

Wimbledon's coverage is quite good on NBC, I know I'll have tennis coverage on both weekends plus a few other days, so it's better than nothing
